And yes, lots of people like dandelion salads, etc.
That would be "hardy" . . . Just so you know. Or "impossible to get rid of" is also appropriate. I tried to clear a lawn of dandelions once without using weed killer (wanted to be natural, ya know). Waste of effort. If you leave any root at all in the ground the plant will come back. And if you get the root all out, the tiny windblown seeds from last year sprout REALLY well, LOL.
Every horse I've ever given dandelion leaves or flowers to has adored them.
